This directory contains the RFB protocol specification. This is a community oriented version of the specification that RealVNC maintains and the purpose of this version is to be a complete description of the protocol including extensions. If you wish to discuss the protocol, or submit changes, do so on the rfbproto mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org). Small fixes can also be submitted as pull requests directly on github. Adhere to the required style of commit messages and documentation though. Note that before any new extensions can be added to the document, you must first obtain an official number allocation from RealVNC Ltd. You are very welcome to discuss your ideas before that though. Submitting Patches ------------------ Patches should be made in the standard unified diff format (diff -u). You should also specify a one line description of the change, a longer description with the purpose of the changed, and a Signed-off-by line to keep track of who has modified the document. Also make sure you follow the style guidelines below. Example: Clarify how awesome RFB is It is not apparent in the document how awesome the RFB protocol is. Clarify this in the header so that new readers quickly get up to speed.

Because it works at the framebuffer level it is applicable to all windowing systems and applications, including X11, Style Guidelines ---------------- The document is written using the reStructuredText format. This gives us a readable text source, but still allows for easy conversion to other formats. In order to avoid wrapping in most contexts, lines should be no longer than 72 characters. The text is always left justified. Indentation is 4 spaces and never any tabs. Keywords are marked with *emphasis* to make them easily distinguishable from the rest of the text. Every reference to a keyword should be marked. Types are marked using ``LITERAL`` and should be written in all upper case. Tables are written using the simple form and should be extended to fill up the full 72 character width. If the section the table is in is indented, then the table should also be indented. The width will be reduced in this case. Headings use the following markers: Heading 1 ========= Heading 2 +++++++++ Heading 3 --------- Heading 4 ~~~~~~~~~
